As modern orchestras grow more thunderous in volume, a strong Gaohu section is required to balance out its sound, creating many different shades of music textures. With this loudhailer, it will be effortless to assert your presence, allowing you to take the spotlight when the time comes.

Honed through his years of experience as a veteran Erhu maker, Zhang Lian Jun has ensured that its tone still retains an element of sweetness and malleability, allowing it to blend with its fellow bowed strings counterparts.

WOOD

Having been sufficiently aged and matured, this Black Sandalwood is optimal for making instruments with an exuberant personality. Featuring a classic octagonal design, the projection that it confers is exceptional, while removing any sonic impediments that might discolour its tone.

Sound Box Membrane

The key to a sensitive and good sounding Gaohu lies in the resonating membrane of the sound box. You will find the membrane is stretched to a uniform tension across the sound box  and fitted by hand. When you gently press the membrane with your fingers and you will find that it is firm to your touch – this ensures that the membrane will resonate the sound box to its maximum potential so as to give you a piercing and powerful sound.
